Career opportunities

On completion of your PGCE and being granted qualified teaching status (QTS), you will work for a year as a newly qualified teacher (NQT). We keep in touch with our former students and continue to support them throughout their NQT year.

A Secondary Economics with Business Education PGCE from the University of Manchester is a valued qualification regionally, nationally and internationally.  You will be given clear direction, advice and support when making applications for teaching posts and our employment rates are consistently high. The number of students studying A/AS level Economics is rising and as such, economics is becoming a shortage subject in terms of recruitment.  Over 90% of our Secondary Business Education PGCE graduates in 2015 were in a teaching post within six months of completing the course.
